Mrs. Milburn’s Tact


She Thoughtfully Relieved Mrs. McKinley of All Obligations as a Guest.

     His position as president of the Pan-American Exposition made the name of John G. Milburn familiar to thousands of his countrymen during the past six months or more, while the circumstances in connection with the death of President McKinley caused the name Milburn to become a household word.
     In the reference to the incidents of the trying days from September 6 to 14 little or no mention was made by the newspapers of Mrs. Milburn. The explanation for this is the fact that Mrs. Milburn and her family were at the seashore when the late President arrived in Buffalo, but the Milburn house was prepared for the use of President McKinley and his party during their stay in the exposition city. Although Mrs. Milburn returned to the city before President McKinley died, she tactfully refrained from assuming the position of hostess to the presidential party in order to relieve Mrs. McKinley of all obligations as a guest.
     Mrs. Milburn is a woman of splendid character and prominent in the home and social life of Buffalo, but is not concerned at all with women’s clubs.
